It would be hard to sum up Super Guachin with one word but Pixelated isn’t bad. Piratas y Fichines (Pirates and Videogames/Arcades), which is somehow only their second release (see Cabeza! 009), is an insight into the Mendozan brothers’ weird and wonderful world of bleeps, bass and cumbia.
The duo’s music flits between old school console blips, slices of sub bass, cumbia villera rhythms and samples of anything that takes their fancy. They call it Cumbiatune. We call it a lot of fun.
